After a hectic and long working day, maybe a lot of traveling and a bunch of hours of business, it's so great to come home to six hugs - one from each family member! When I'm traveling or leave for work in the early morning hours, before anyone else is awake; those can be days when I don't get to see the family much. Today was one of those days. I only got to put the kids to bed. However, the final hours of the day can be the best time to be with them.
I love telling stories or just listening to what they have to share, to give them a back rub or simply talk about what happened during the day. I always try to let the kids be in charge. It almost becomes a magic moment when they tend to open up and share things they otherwise would never tell.
